Calgary is nwklng a vigorou.s effort to got railwaj' com|>etition th.'rc It fears that if it does not soon secure opposition, that will give '.he city competitive rates, it will losio a lot of its wholesale business to td-arc merely buying i monton, which is in the full enjoyment of competitive rates. The CP. R. has done much for Calgary, but the future of that city will not amount to much if it depends solely upon the C.P.K. It must have railroid competition, if it wants to build i:p its wholesale and manufacturing busines.s. Jf it vere not for the investments the Americans are mfaking in the west, the, development of this coun-tn' woiild be Very slow. Our friends across the border seem to have nu>r>> faith in the riches of our prairies j than the people of Eastern Canada. They are flocking here in hundreds, buying lands and settling them with thrifty progressive fanriers. True it is that nianj' Eastern CAnada farmers are settling , in the west, but most of them small quantities, while their American brothers are purchasing land in big tracts for invaatment purposes, their: experience in tb^ Western States, teaching them that the soil of Weatera Canada is worth having and will increase in value rapidly. The trouble with Eastern Canad -ions is that they do not know enough of the west. They sit in their offices in the east and imagine the talcs of the wonderful growth and richness of the west ore a myth. They gladly accept small dividends for their investments in Ontario, and are afraid to come out here and take a. chance on making from 10 to .50 per cent, where they now make five or six in the East. The ignorance that prevails in the East about conditions in the west was displayed at the time the .)im j Hill project of a transcontinental , railway, without cash subsidy or land grant, was before the senate. > Two or three venerable Senators, who had never been out of their native province, ridiculed the idea and denounced the attempt of an American road to build through Western Canada. If the old gentlemen had visited the west and acquainted themselves with the absolute necessity for i better transportation facilities, they would never have taken the stand they did. The American people are making money in the west, because they realize the wealth of the country in its resources and prospects, wh;lo many Canadians on account of their far too conservative'business mrth-ods and lack of knowledge, arc lo.arren des-(trts of plains. Going bonvc at recess means that you have fallen asleep at the switch and your train has plunged into the ditch. Always stay until school is out. PRESS CRINDING. I>>tnhridgo is in the same boat as Calgary in this respect. In order to get the trade of the west, cast, south and north, wo must have other railroads, if we expect to become a. large wholesale and industrial ('en-tre. J. J. Hill's railroad cannot get here too soon. Hill's proposed .-oad would give tis competition through the country to. the Pass district and v'ould open up new territory north, south and east. New settlements would spring up and Ijethbridge would be the centre of a big ponii-lation. Then the new roads wo-ild ; force the present freight rates fro.n Cranbrook Herald: Kake advertis -ing hos been pu.shed to the finish in Cranbrook the past year, and the time has come for the merchants to 'turn a deaf ear to the smooth ton -gucd chaps from the outside who are after the best of it at all times. Just a few days ago a number of merchants got touched up for $0 n piece and are now wondering what they got for their money. Cranbrook Herald: The credit system in Cronbrook is entirely too lax, and if a crimp was taken in tlu-manner of doing business it would he far better for the merchant ami for the buyer as well. Calgary Albertan: The nuinagc-ntent of the mines at Leth bridge have refused again to deal with the officials of the miners' union thore and so the strike goes on.

The The more the nutil service is looked into, the worse its condition be � comes. It's simply outrageous the I way the mails t^re handled in this } country. We were told by a prom -inent citizen the other day that three letters sent to Battleford, Saak.. took 14, 11 and 8 days reepectiv-wy to reach that point. One could almost get a letter to Englaad in that time.

Do your best --^ liCthbridge a tidy looking' BORING FOR GAS. noxious to make city. It behooves the city council to supervise the boring operations to be conducted by the Electric Light Co., providing the ratepayers approve the bylaw, with the utmost diligence. The citizens are anxious that natural gas should be discovered and if the Electric Light Co. fail to strike it, there will be more criticism of the City's action than there is now. If gas is found, not a word of criticism is likely to follow. So the City Council, in order to avoid th s crit-icismi, must .sec that every clTort possible is put forth to strike gas. The impression seems to prevail that the Electric Light Co. is not anxious to discover gas, but the Herald believes that the company is composed of men who are too honorable and public spirited to deceive, and will do its utmost to satisfy the public. The bylaw should be supported hy the ratpayers. If the Electric Light Co. fails to find gas and then the citizens are dissatisfied, the city can then bore Jor gas on its own account The present proposition is one that does not cost the city a cent, unless gas is found, and the city will be glad to put up the mon.v if the niuch desired commodity is found. If it is not found, the city is not out any money. If the people are then of the opinion that gas exists here, the city can spend .?10,000 of its own money to satisfy the dubious. Keep in mind here this fall. a big coJeljriition GOSSIP ON THE SIDE Ijr Ike Taltkr If you want to sec some fine liay all' you have to do is to take a drive along the irrigation ditch. Fine alfalfa and rye grass is to be seen. I The Board of Trade should get some photographs taken of the fine fields oi' hay and grain in this district and have them distributed throughout the length and breadth ol the land. It would be a very effective way of drawing people's attention to this country. I was talking to a gentleman, who while not a farmer, is well informed on agricultiial matters, and be said that if he owned a farm on the ditch he would devote most of his attention to hay. It does not nMjuire the attention graina do and brings a big price, especially when two and three crops a year can bo secured from alfalfa. union attitude of the men in this respect was quite within their rights. The time has come when union-s arc u factor, and nc�t to capital the im.-portant factor in production in this country. To maintain a union it has been found that negotiations of this and other kinds must Ih? car-rencon light to them when tossed upon the strong sea of tomptat -ion. u  ! e HILL AND THE G. T. P.

Ills appointment as superintendent of schools in the Albertan capital is a tribute to bis ability as an educate ioptlist. HcCaig is a buoyant westerner. Be is brimming over with faith in this country. Hon men like John A. Silver says this district suits him splendidly. He prefers it ! to anything he bos seen north or I cast. A good farmer can limake men-|ey here, but the poor fellow, who thinks all he has to do is to throw the grain on the bare prairie, ought to be kicked out. Some farmers-so they call themselves-of that type have gone back to the Western States and tried to knock the country, just beeause they failed up here, through lack of brains. Mr. Silver has invested largely in land around here and knows what he is talking about. (Pincher Creek Echo.) The vote on the mill bylaw to loan ton thousand dollars to H.

Failure does not always n\eait weakness; it may tnean strength not quite strong enough for the greater task. People who iittempt nothing seldom fail. Xapoleon failed at Waterloo because all of Europe was ar rayed against him. The West is one hundred. i>cr cent more generous than the East. A dollar out here is valued al)Out as much us five cents in the East. So ^better evidence of the liberality of Western people . can be given than the response the committee met with in raising func^ for the sports lu^re at the time of the fair.
